Busy return to action for Chesterfield Athletic Club
Chesterfield & District athletes have been busy since the lifting of lockdown restrictions.
Alex Ediker was the first to take advantage setting a new 5km personal best (PB) on the road at Barrowford, Lancashire on 3rd April. Alex's time of 14:45 knocked three seconds off the time he ran in December 2020.
Ellie Oscroft set two new PB's at an open track & field meeting in Nuneaton on 11th April. Ellie’s time of 14.8 seconds in the 100m knocked almost a second off her previous best time and in the 200m she clocked 30.04secs which beat her previous best by over two seconds.
There was another 100m PB for Ellie with a time of 14.5secs in Sheffield at the Run Jump Throw open meeting on 18th April. Ellie later ran 30.55secs to win her 200m race. Gracie Pell ran 15.03secs in the 100m & followed that up with her first ever run over the 300m distance, clocking 50.9secs.
In the field Jacob Peers-Wain threw for the first time as an U17, so faced heavier implements than last year, achieving 19.94m in the hammer & 14.91m in the discus.
Beth Falconer equalled her PB in the pole vault jumping 2.70m with Lottie Hall vaulting 2.30m and in a later pool Will Foot posted 4m for his best start to a season.
